Moog Problem Solver Parts
Moog's problem solver parts, like this K7467 lower front ball joint, target factory defects or poor original design, replacing them with a more durable and easy to install part. And we at DST hope that this gives you Dodge Ram owners some peace of mind. Moog's K7467 is a front lower ball joint for these vehicles:
Original design and other supplier's flaws
OE and other suppliers' designs can lead to early failure in the front lower ball joints that are subject to adverse road conditions or severe duty use. The plastic bearing that was used factory on the Ram is subject to excessive wear. There is no provision for preload, which leads to excessive deflection and degradation of socket torque as the bearing wears. To top it all off, the OE ball joint is non-greaseable, and the tight installation clearance makes servicing other suppliers' ball joints difficult.
Moog problem solving features
Moog's problem solver lower ball joint K7467 features many improvements over the OE and other suppliers' ball joints. Exclusive powdered-metal “gusher” bearing improves wear resistance and durability. A bellville washer ensures proper preload and consistent socket torque for the life of the part. Moog's premium knurled housing ensures strength and a secure installation.
Moog's premium black polychloroprene boot lasts longer than blue neoprene boots. This boot will keep in the grease, and keep out harmful road contaminants that cause the rust and wear to the OE ball joint. Speaking of grease, the best update to the ball joint is Moog's inclusion of a zerk grease fitting. This side-entry style grease fitting allows easy service of ball joint while on vehicle, flushing out any contaminants that find their way in. This Moog ball joint is also much easier to install with the inclusion of a castle nut. Moog's Problem Solver ball joints carry a lifetime warranty, handled in house at DST.
